Budget Gaming Rig

 Share

Hi,


I'm looking for a budget gaming / workstation machine for my little borthers for christmas,
I found on ebay a refurbished HP Workstation with an Intel i5-4590S with 8GB of RAM and a 500GB HDD for 80€ (about 90USD).

 

I want to add an SSD and a GPU to this machine, but i'm not sure wich graphics card to chose.

 

I thought about a new Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Windforce OC Edition but i'm not certain if it is well balanced with this CPU or if I will be CPU-bottlenecked ? Should a buy an old gtx 950 or 750 ti ?
My objective is 1080p / 60fps with low / high settings in games like Garr'ys Mod, Fortnite, CS:GO and smooth small 1080p editing work in Davinci Resolve.

My budget for the graphics card is around 150€ (about 170USD), the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Windforce OC Edition is 140€ (about 157USD) in Amazon France.

 

Thanks for your help !

get a 450/550 watt cx450/550 (2017) from corsair.

 

then grab an used R9 290x/R9 nano

 

you should be able to get the GPU for 120$ and the PSU for about 50$ new.

Thanks for your replies !


@LukeSavenije : How will a 970 or a 780ti perform compared to a 1050 ?

 

@GoldenLag : Haven't even thought about AMD, I'm not very familiar with their products. I'll take a look at it !

r9 290x and R9 Nano will perform like an gtx 1060 6 GB.

 

they are slightly faster than the 780ti. very similar to the 970 with the advantage of having more Vram than both
